A perfect summer wedding: Rachel and Jamie

About a month before her wedding, Rachel contacted me about her flowers. That's a pretty tight turnaround time, but she knew exactly what she wanted.

Her vision was a late summer dream- big full romantic roses in whites and blushes with lots of lush full greenery. Rachel chose a bouquet of large full roses with greens, in a boho romantic style bouquet. She also wore a flower crown, as did her 7 attendants. She was a magical woodland fairy in her gorgeous off white gown.

 The wedding took place in the lush green garden of the bride's aunt. It was a perfect setting.

I decorated the wooden arbour, which became the chuppah. White organza fabric was draped around, with a mix of garden roses, spray roses, lizianthus blooms and love in a puff vines trailing across the top.

The tables were rectangular rustic wooden pieces, which I set long green garlands on, with clustered blooms at each end. Serving platters were set ,family style, along the tables.

It was a ridiculously hot day for a wedding set up, as I worked on site making the garlands it was over 30 degrees Celsius, and there were dark storm clouds brewing over head.   But as I left, the sun had begun to shine, blue skies were showing and it turned out to be a magical evening.
